Seduced by the promise of a tiny, cheap laptop and stories of people running Mac OS X on it, I bought an Eee pc the day after I arrived in Bangkok. Smaller than I expected, it fits into the bag I carry around and weighs under a kilo. As it's so small the keyboard does take a bit of getting used to, but it's quite useable for typing on.

It comes with Linux pre-installed but can run Windows if you're that way inclined. Having read up a bit more about it now, it sounds as though no-one has OS X running smoothly on it yet - so I guess I'll hang off with that for the moment. If only Apple would bring out their long-fabled ultra-notebook! There are so many times when you want to check a website or have something with a full-size (ish) keyboard for typing on but don't want to lug around a huge laptop. So far it seems to be fitting those uses for me pretty well.
